international stardom in 2006. along with celebrity came a public battle with alcohol can drugs. joining me with more, ian drew, editor with "us weekly" among the first, if not the first, to interview amy winehouse. you spotted her way back when and followed her ever since. first, your initial reaction when you heard i'm died. >> it's funny, not many people draw the parallel, but i interviewed michael jackson, and i had a similar feeling, when michael died whereas i was in shock, but i also felt two things, i felt, a, why didn't this happen sooner, i expected it to happen sooner because i knew about his problem. but also was it true this time? there were so many rumors over the years that this was happening, going to happen, and part of me was a little hesitant to believe it, because in that sense that you have to check it out. is it true?
